How about a comic thread?

Posted 27 January 2012 - 02:55 PM

Hello, everyone! The other day, after hitting a local comic shop, I wondered if there had every been a "Comic Thread" (like the monthly desktop threads) here on DIC. Well, after searching a lil' bit, I couldn't find anything like that. So I then wondered if anybody here would even like to have one? If I were to open a thread where you could post pics to show off all your glossy geek merch, would I get any takers?
Hmm?

I'm confused - is this to trade comics, show off what you picked up that month, or just display other collectible items?

To display any comics you collect. Not really anything else, although you could if you wanted. And it also doesn't have to be just what you have picked up that month.

Sure.. well just use this thread.. I am not sure if it should be a pinned one but if there's enough interest it'll keep itself afloat.

Well.. lol I didn't plan on taking any pics yet. I was just wondering for future reference. I mean, I didn't wanna post something like that and have like no replies. That'd be a little awkward. If somebody else posts some pics here, though, I'll take some n post em soon after. Perhaps I can make a more formal thread here in a few months (this probably isn't a monthly kinda thing, ideally.)

Personally, I don't collect any comic books. I don't really have the space and I am already collecting a bookshelf of hardcover (mostly first edition) books that I have actually read. It is going slow (sadly I don't have enough breaks to get a ton of reading done), but it is coming along.

I do however read web-comics... well a few at least. The ones I read: xkcd, questionable content, and lfg. I used to read order of the stick, but they get moving too slow for a bit and lost my interest. I may start back up again now that it looks like it may actually be moving... but yeah...

I do have other geeky merchandise which I can post pictures of once I get home (later tonight). But for the moment I am without a camera... and most of the merchandise... That makes things difficult.

Yeah I'm an amateur collector of comic (books) and the other various merch in the geeky realm. Hobby-ish thing, I guess. But before I go overboard with showing the world all my crap, I'm waiting on something I ordered to arrive... An Ebay store sent me the wrong thing, so I've gotta wait another few days for what I actually ordered. lol.

Aww.. aw.. now you've gone and done it. My arched eyebrow has been raised in ire.

Well.. lol I didn't plan on taking any pics yet.

You don't have pictures in an off site storage center for insurance purposes?! What if you bits and goods are handled in appropriately? Burnt in a house fire? Absconded by nare-do-wells? Some drunk girl irrationally decides to slobber on them them and put them in her mouth?! You *MUST* protect the purity of your goods, so thrustly, with photos!


Quote

I was just wondering for future reference.

Spec work?

Quote

I mean, I didn't wanna post something like that and have like no replies.

Why? TONS of my posts go unnoticed or kicked to the curb like so many of ODB's hoes. Would that, like, ruin your daily self esteem, or impact your view of yourself?

Quote

That'd be a little awkward.

It's the internet *LOTS* of things are awkward. Hell I bet a large number of people reading this, right now, are doing so in their underwear on pleather chairs. Now that's awkward.

Not one for the leadership are ya?

Why does it need to be formal? You have some odd notions about the internet. Odd notions indeed.

Here.. how about this.. I'll post two things I am reading right now and you won't be alone. (well not right-right now.. but like in general right now.. though I am a month or so behind hitting up the store... so maybe like "theoretical right now".)

Suicide Squad & Witch Doctor. Look'em up.

shit... is it that obvious? that reminds me of a Ron White joke

Quote

I was sitting on a bean bag chair, naked, eating Cheetos the other day when Robert Tilton came on the television. He's a televangelist from Dallas. He looked at me and said, "Are you lonely?"

Yeah

"Have you spent half your life in bars pursuing sins of the flesh?"

This guy's good!

"Are you sitting in a bean bag chair naked eating Cheetos?"

...Yes, sir!

"Do you have the urge to get up and send me a thousand dollars?"

Ha, ha close!.....I thought he was talking about me there for a second!

What's with the alternate font in the OP? It annoys me.

There was a thread like this where people started flaming each other over Manga and stuff. I personally don't care as I don't read any of these- I need moving pictures, sound and color at the least.

In my comic days my three prized possessions were :

Iron Man #55
Uncanny X-Men #18
Uncanny X-Men #44

Those are all long gone now... sold my entire collection to a child-hood friend for $200 in 1996.
